Making The Selection
During my years at the bench there have been many forks in the road, some leading to paths that weren’t clear or very well lit. None of these scared me; none required any real self-examination before taking them. There were moments when the selection was made based on people I met. William Turnage was one such man. Some twenty five years ago last April he walked into my life, took an interest in what I was doing, became an unwitting mentor, and helped me shape what was to become the next road I’d walk down. At the time, I was lost and a bit disenchanted with my trade. Over the course of several years, Bill helped me see things through another lens, and I’ve been all the richer for it ever since.
